PRINT GIVEAWAY! Expressionistic Acrylic Collage

As an artist I think it's important to experiment .
It broadens our horizon, and opens up our mind.
I was inspired by an artist from Cincinatti by the
name of Merle Rosen http://www.merlerosen.com/ ,who
works in a variety of media. I took an online workshop http://storefront.theplatform.com/GetStorefrontEvent.event?page=6&pid=CK4RjzktyKz5nA4WCxJG2wuzZPcrnbsW with
two videos from Merle Rosen, and was inspired by her.
I wanted to try it out myself.
Your in touch with your stream of consciusness during this
painting process, and results in interesting outcomes.
When I was finished with this first piece it aroused a sense
of joy, and contentment . I was giddyish , like a child every
time I looked at it.
I used recycled material from my kitchen for stamping.
The collage was done on a watercolor canvas board, and
collage pieces on yupo paper
I used various gel mediums, and acrylic paints
Now, I want a name for this painting.
Please enter and give this painting a name.
I will choose the title i like best then the winner will
win a print.
You can enter more than once, if you come up with
another title.
The deadline is Feb. 14th!
The winner will be announced on Feb. 15th!

The first thing that I think of when I see this is ~ "Life is Calling" It's welcoming and makes you want to step into the painting with the wonderfully colorful character.

Great piece and love the colours and concept.

I would call it "Enjoying the Moment" or Natures Glory.
